South Derbyshire Community Drummers

South Derbyshire Community Drummers is a regular monthly djembe drumming group for adults (over 16's) with a relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, creating a fun and informal musical environment.

History of the group:

The group began in January 2014 and we have been based at several venues including Swadlincote Leisure Centre where the sessions initially started and then moving on to Swadlincote Town Hall.

Between 2015-2020 we based ourselves at the Dance and Music Centre in Swadlincote. Throughout Covid lockdown we were not able to meet, and once we were able to resume sessions in Autumn 2021 the decision was made to move the group to a venue that offered a large open space to re-assure and re-engage participants. Sessions were held monthly on a Saturday afternoon at Sharpes Pottery Museum in Swadlincote, we drummed in the Kiln which was a fantastic space to make music in and offered plenty of ventilation.

As lockdown restrictions began to lift the number of participants began to grow and once again we had to move venue to accomodate the increasing demand. In March 2022 we moved to Hill Street Baptist Church Hall in Swadlincote which has a huge space with a high ceiling, giving the opportunity for more people to join us.

We welcome new people and no previous musical experience is necessary - djembe drums are available for use during the sessions if you don't have your own.
